Excerpt from : OKLAHOMA FOLKLIFE SOCIETIES.........The president, the secretary, and the advisory council accomplished most of the work for organizing the presentations. He specifically gave credit to Della I. Young and Ethel Perry Moore, both of whom served as secretary. Moore, along with her husband, Chauncey O. Moore, collected ballads and folksongs in Oklahoma..... The Chronicles of Oklahoma 30 (Spring 1952). Ethel Moore and Chauncey O. Moore, Ballads and Folk Songs of the Southwest (Norman: University of Oklahoma Press, 1964). Guy Logsdon © Oklahoma Historical Society

Excerpt from the Ballads and Folksongs of the Southwest , page 200: The dramatist Lynn Riggs, in choosing the title for his play Green Grow the Lilacs, has helped to keep this already popular song before the public eye. Later, this play became the basis for the Broadway hit musical, Oklahoma!, by Rodgers and Hammerstein.

Ethel Pauline was the oldest child of John Lawrence Perry and Jennie Mae Clapp. She grew up working her way through college and graduate school, becoming a teacher and librarian. She was the person I give credit for starting Perry genealogy research in our family. Her middle name, Pauline, is from her maternal grandmother's name Pauline Raines.
